Life Insurance Companies will not
Insure a man suffering from heart
The reason is obvious.
This is a serious matter to the hu&
band or father who is solicitous foi
the future of his dear ones. Often
the heart trouble is caused by an tin
expected thing and can be corrected il
taken in time and properly treated. A
man in Colorado writes:
"1 was a great coffee drinker foi
many years, and was not aware of the
injurious effects of the habit till 1
became a practical invalid, suffering
lrom heart trouble, indigestion and
nervousness to an extent that made
me wretchedly miserable myself and
a nuisance to those who witnessed my
"I continued to drik coffee, how
ever, not suspecting that it was the
cause of my ill-health, till on applying
for life insurance I was rejected on ac
count of the trouble with my heart
Then I became alarmed. I found that
leaving off coffee helped me quickly, so
I quit it altogether aud having been
attracted by the advertisements of
Pcstum I bgan ito use.
"The change in my condition was re
markable. Ail my ailments vanished.
My diges'ion was completely restored,
my :ie"i oasness disappeared, and,
most impoitant of all, my heart stead
ied down r.r.d became normal, and on a
tcc-ond examination I was accepted by
the Life Insurance Co. Quitting coffee
